Hey, guess what? It’s Faaaaa-riday! Friday, Friday, Friday…
Hmmm, I’m trying to think of interesting things to tell you about that happened this week, but to be honest, it was rather uneventful. I basically worked, ate, and slept. And wrote a lot…Yeah, riveting, I know.
Probably the most exciting thing that happened this week took place in my make believe world. I’ve officially reached the “bang” chapters in my manuscript. Woo-hoo!
At long last, I’ve pulled the first thread to unravel all the suspense and mystery I’ve been weaving since chapter one. The you-know-what has finally hit the fan. Everything my two main characters thought they knew is on the brink of destruction.
Dun, dun, dunnnnn 😉
I’ve actually been so nervous about writing these chapters, I’ve felt sick to my stomach most of the week. When I begin to work on them, my brain short circuits for a second and my heart starts to dance a crazy jig. I usually have to stop, take a deep breath, and center myself before I dive into the madness.
As overwhelming as it’s been, it’s also been a lot of fun. Like, A LOT of fun. I just love writing suspense and drama and action and…Ahhh!
Anyway, for today I chose two Friday Funnies. Well, one is funny and one is a great quote that I couldn’t resist sharing with you. This first one is dedicated to my endless daydreaming as I plot out the next few whirlwind chapters.
This second isn’t so much funny as it is great advice about writing suspense. I chose it because it’s exactly what I’ve been attempting to do these past couple of months while working on the first half of my book.
How was your week? Hopefully more thrilling than mine. On the bright side, I am going over to a friend’s house tonight to finally watch Divergent…I know, I know. Don’t even ask me how I haven’t seen it yet. It was on my “to-do” list and…yeah. It never got done. Whoops! Please don’t yell at me too much. 😉
